    Great. So being the Switch noob that I am, how do I go about adding you to my Friends List?

    EPIC comeback in Rainmaker yesterday.

    Our team was down by some distance, but we were in possession. Match went into overtime and we made a desperate last push. Somehow, against all odds, despite being armed with the umbrella weapon-type, I managed to splat 3 of the opposition in quick succession as they formed a defensive line.

    This allowed us to take the lead and win in the last seconds.

    That carrier better bloody appreciate what I did there!

    My kids want to play on the dance mini game in the lobby but there is always someone on it? Are we missing something?

    It's decoration. It's not playable.

    @DangerousDave_87

    Yep. I've played it :) Sadly your squid doesn't dance. It's the music and you have to hit the buttons in time with the beat. Let me find a video...

    Yes! But the game on the left not the one on the right which is playable. Maybe Dave is correct, it's just for show. My poor daughter has been trying for half a hour waiting for the other "player" to finish :(

    Shame :(

    I've tried many different weapons and my favourite is still the Splattershot Jr.

    Any beginner tips on aiming?

    I am a very average fps player. The last game I extensively played was Titanfall 2 and for me a good round meant 8-10 kills. :-)

    With Splatoon I mostly focus on painting everything because I aim like crap. Even more so in this game than other shooters because of the arc of the paint I guess? I find it difficult to get to grips with this.

    Is this a thing with Splatoon and do I need to know more about the way the paint shoots out of a weapon. Where to aim so to speak? Or is it really only my lack of general fps skills?

    Cheerio!

    @bef Are you using motion controls? With aiming, it depends on the weapon. Some have short range, some have long range. Use the practice range in Sheldon's shop to have a play with a few weapons and find one you like. Also try the single player to get used to shooting.

    Painting the ground in turf war is what you should be doing and the splatting of enemies isn't as important. What is important is not getting splatted in the last 30 seconds as it can change the game.

    I will get on average 3 splats a game in turf war and about 12 splats in ranked games.

    Yep, it's official. I freaking love Splatoon.

    Everything about it: The well-realised universe; the gameplay mechanics; the nautical puns. Every aspect of it appeals, which is something I don't say often with games. From the MP, to SP to Mr. Grizz's exploitative labour.

    I've just hit Level 10 and attempted my first Ranked Battles. Felt like a step-up in skill for sure and lost every game :D

    Would be great to grab a few EG Friends to join whenever the stars align.
    Sorry for replying to old post, but ranked is completely different. If you play with the mindset of turf war, you will lose and different games have different tactics.

    For example, Splat zones is about controlling a zone (either a rectangle or two squares), so inking everywhere isn't going to help. It's about inking the area fully in your ink and defending it.

    They're great for painting. I'm not too good with splatting unless I'm very close range, though!

    I must have had team mates spawn on me a good ten times that game. Super aggressive play. Or suicidal.
